Thanks to Ralph from Buddy TV for sending me this article they conducted with Shalim Ortiz who plays Mayas brother on Heroes about his Role and his future…

Haha. Finally, after the first three episodes really, a lot of people on the internet … there was a little bit of a backlash against your characters, Maya and Alejandro. People just, for some reason, not gelling with those characters and I’m just wondering if you read or heard any of that negative feedback and how you would respond to that?

Well, it’s funny because I think as much as I’ve heard negative feedback I’ve heard positive feedback on our storyline. People are also really loving where it’s all going. It’s completely understandable that there is a fan base for the show that already loves these characters that were on season one. And for anybody that gets to do these new people, it takes a little while for you to start getting what the true essence of our story is and what message we want to give away. But I think that little by little people are really starting … these characters are really starting to grow into people. I also love the fact that it’s something that didn’t happen overnight. You have to earn something for people to really like your character, it doesn’t just take one or two episodes. I don’t think anybody has fallen in love with any of the new characters in just one day. It’s taken various episodes for you to see what a character can go through. In our case, we go through so much stuff and I think we’ve given away the message that we don’t mean to harm people, it’s more like things are happening that are out of our control and I think the audience is starting to realize that. And from now on, I think they’re going to be looking at us with different eyes.
